Herrin shares, “The glue that held Corvette together was the team, but the glue that held the car together was a two-part adhesive: a resin and a hard¬ener. Just like what is purchased at Walmart, these two components required mixing and used in a specific manner and time. In order to mix them, the application nozzles had replaceable plastic tubes that slipped into the nozzles. Within the plastic tubes were inserts made of plastic with a maze of twists, turns, and open spaces, which thor¬oughly mixed the two-part adhesive into one strong bonding agent.”
